Offshore and towage

Leth >> Services >> Offshore & towage

Leth's towage, semi-submersible and heavy-lift activities in Egypt commenced operations in the early 1990’s. Over the last 30 years, we have coordinated numerous offshore and towage transits through the Suez Canal. Our in-depth knowledge as transit managers in these segments have made us become the leading transit-agent in the Suez Canal for offshore, oil & gas clients. In 2020, we handled the world’s longest freight transport through the Suez Canal with a towage of 12 large diameter plastic-pipes with a combined length of 6,722 meters. We also coordinated the project-transits for the “Johan Sverdrup” oil field in Norway (2018/2021) and the “Marin 9/11A” oil field in the UK North Sea 2017.
